Ultimate Fighting Championship legend Chuck “The Ice Man” Liddell, 51, and comedian Adam Ray, 38, are the hosts of the new podcast show titled “IceBreakers,” which will air on the Drinkin’ Bros Network. UFC president Dana White, 51, will be the guest on the first episode.
“IceBreakers” episode 1 will drop on Apple Podcast, Spotify and YouTube at 8:00 p.m. ET. on April 19, 2021. It is almost 1 hour long.
The premiere episode features White in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. He talked live via Zoom to Liddell and Ray, who were in Los Angeles, California.
White used to be the manager of Liddell and Tito Ortiz, 46. Liddell competed as a professional mixed martial artist from 1998 to 2018 and reigned as the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion from April 16, 2005 to May 26, 2007.
On May 15, 1998, Liddell made his professional MMA debut at “UFC 17” in Mobile, Alabama, USA. He defeated Noe Hernandez via unanimous decision.
On April 2, 2004, Liddell knocked out Ortiz at “UFC 47” in Las Vegas. In their rematch at “UFC 66” in Las Vegas on December 30, 2006, Liddell knocked out Ortiz again.
Liddell’s last professional MMA bout was at “Golden Boy Promotions: Liddell vs Ortiz 3” in Inglewood, California on November 24, 2018. The latter knocked out the former.
Made up of Daniel Holloway, Ross Patterson and Jarred “JT” Taylor, the Drinkin’ Bros Podcast Network originally started as a group of like-minded people with similar life experiences. It began as a Facebook group for military veterans coming home.
The network was created with the idea that no one should never drink alone or no one should ever be or feel alone. Through this community, the veterans always had someone to lean on when dealing with difficulties they face when coming home, such as PTSD.
Since its inception, the network has grown into something much more. Aside from “IceBreakers” featuring Liddell and Ray, the podcast network also features “American Party” with Dan Holloway and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, “Iconoblast” with Matt Cooper and Joel Benner, “Drinkin’ Broettes” starring Tiffany Hart and Jessie Wiseman and “Revolution” with Ross Patterson.
Also, the network is a fellowship, a charitable organization and an entertainment hub that has helped to launch multiple business owners and careers. Throughout all of this growth, its has never lost its original intent, which is to be a home for veterans.
